The Kangaroo is one of the most popular native Australian animals and is unique to Australia, thus making the Kangaroo skin such a popular souvenir to overseas visitors.
There are two species of kangaroos. The Eastern Grey Kangaroo (Macropus Giganteus) and the Red Kangaroo (Macropus Rufus).
The Grey Kangaroo is known for its longish grey hair. There is no distinction between male and female on the finished kangaroo skin rug.
